from? easter island. again, thanks for watching us tonight. i'm bill o'reilly. please always remember that the spin stops we're definitely looking out for you. >> sean: this is a fox news alert. three college friends of suspect number two arrested today in connection with the boston marathon bombings. for the latest we go to fox news' own david lee miller, standing by with all the details. david? >> sean, these three friends, according to authorities, were trying to help dzhokhar tsarnaev from being arrested. two are from kazakhstan, identified asinine-year-old dias kadyrbayev. they disposed of a backpack containing fireworks, also a laptop computer. the question why? again, according to the
complaint they didn't want their friend to get in trouble. i quote, kadyrbayev placed the trash bag into a dumpster. for this they could receive five years behind bars. also in court today, robel phillipos, accused of repeatedly lying to investigators. i lied during three separate interviews according to the criminal complaint. finally in the fourth interview he confessed he wasn't telling the truth to agents. also we learned more about the alleged bomber, dzhokhar tsarnaev. he allegedly told his friends one month before the twin explosions that he knew how to make a bomb. sean? >> sean: david, thank you. also tonight there's a report that the united states in fact received a letter from saudi arabia, the saudi government in 2012, warning them about suspect number one, but the white house and the embassy are denying the report.
for more on this developing story, we go to former lapd detective mark fuhrman and jay seculo. mark, we were told by the homeland security secretary that there was no broader plot. i thought at the time she couldn't make such a statement, but she did. >> she makes a lot of statements she can't make. she has no law enforcement, military or security experience before she was the head of homeland security. she's relying on what people feed her or off the cuff. the larger plot, sean, is we're at war with radical islam. that's it in a nutshell. and we're not getting on board. it's a wake-up call, and we're not coming to the game. >> sean: when you read the criminal complaint, going through this as it was
unfolding, and we kept talking a lot about surveillance tape, and photographs, all of that is mentioned repeatedly in this complaint. so clearly law enforcement worked quickly, got a lot done, but then we've got this other side of law enforcement where the older brother was on the cia watch list and the fbi interviewed him and there was no follow-up. the russian government warned us. frankly i don't think we've gotten good answers to these questions. why? >> we haven't gotten good answers, sean. in that fbi office in boston, or a mysterious place, there's a vault of information where they do investigations on possible terrorists and hide them so law enforcement can't ever see them and compare the photos and investigation to a crime that just occurred. what happened with these three young men, look at, this it was exactly like they know a murder occurred. they took the murder weapon and tried to destroy it. that in a nutshell is what they
did. >> sean: well, two of them admitted they agreed to get rid of this material after concluding from news reports that the suspect number two was in fact one of the boston marathon bombers. let's talk about that, jay. that's a huge problem they acknowledged and admitted that. >> absolutely. mark is absolutely correct also. this is no different than a murder weapon being hidden. some are acting as if these three students that are men, they are adults, and they're acting as if this was some kind of cheating scandal they were trying to cover up. this was a terror attack, and they were trying to cover up evidence. the text messaging that they got, the statements they made, showed they committed a crime. something deeper, where are the answers to these questions? are we so insistent -- homeland
security, the president -- saying they're lone wolves, saying these were self-radicalized. what does that mean anyway? if you watch an internet site long enough, what's the difference of being there, watching it on your computer screen, and hearing a guy in a mosque? i don't think there's a difference. exactly what mark said, we're in a war with radical jihadists. as soon as we realize that, we wouldn't let college students get away with this. >> sean: they're admitting to doing this, at this particular point, if you believe the criminal complaint. what i i don't understand, the first instinct of our government is not to suspect what is obvious, that there's a good chance that radical islamist jihadists are involved. that's number one. in the case of fort hood, they lie to the american people, saying it's workplace violence.
we all know differently. then to tell the american people in this instance there's a broader prom. plot. we find out there were watch list, they were warned. you would think they would be watching anybody that posted jihadist videos like the old brother. >> sean, you're right. when you look at this, you're asking the question why does the federal government, why does the white house, why do the mouthpieces for the white house say what they say. well, they say it because it's easier. it's harder to track down terrorists. the bar is much higher and you need to be much, much more into the game of security and antiterrorism, and that takes effort. that takes training. it takes throwing political correctness out the window. you need to call things as they
are. radical vandalis islam is radic. >> sean: these three that we learned about today, they willingly destroyed, concealed, covered up evidence on the part of suspect number two, dzhokhar, and lied to investigators. if you're their lawyers, what are you thinking about how much culpability there may be and what penalty they're facing? >> one faces an eight-year penalty, the other five years. i would be worried about additional charges. i don't know what the rush was for the u.s. attorney's office to file the complaint here. again, you know, you've got two that aren't american citizens. so this whole are they enemy combatants? i don't know what they are. we don't know who they are. we know one thing. they did attempt to destroy weapons. you know what this really is, sean, none of this is fitting into the white house's narrative
on how this war against terrorism was supposed to be over. the narrative is not playing out the way the administration wants to. if you're the lawyers here, you've got to be concerned that there's more charges, as there probably should be as this investigation continues. >> sean: mark, should we expect there's more people involved in this before all is said and done? >> yes, but i'm not sure that we'll find out now or possibly ever, but i think there's going to be a lot of people down the line that knew about these brothers and their training in russia, and it's going to come out more and more, trickle out. i believe that. >> sean: all right. guys, thank you so much for being with us. we'll continue to update, follow the story. we don't get to the truth, we don't get to the bottom of it, we remain vulnerable to future attacks. that's why this is important. coming up on "hannity," he was called out at yesterday's press conference. senator lindsey graham believes american security has taken a

raised about the intelligence community. let's not forget it was president obama's homeland security security secretary janet sherlock napolitano who was quick to say this was not part of a broader plot. and just yesterday our commander in chief was asked about one senator's criticism. watch this. >> lindsey graham, a senior member of the armed services committee, has said that benghazi and boston are both examples of the u.s. going backwards or national security. is he right? did our intelligence miss something? >> no, mr. graham is not right on this issue. although i'm sure it generated some headlines. the russian intelligence services had alerted u.s. intelligence about the older brother as well as the mother indicating they might be sympathizers to extremists. the fbi investigated that older brother. it's not as if the fbi did nothing. they not only investigated the
older brother, they interviewed the older brother. they concluded that there were no signs that he was engaging in extremist activity. >> sean: joining me now to explain directly to the president why he thinks he's right on the issue, south carolina senator lindsey graham. good to see you. welcome back. >> thanks for having me. >> sean: let's get your response to the president first. >> well, number one, mr. president, after the fbi interviewed this young man and his mother, the cia was contacted by the russians months later, he was put into a terrorist watch list. he goes to russia and dhs finds out, he comes back, but they never tell the fbi or cia. so nobody knows what he did when he was in russia. when he got back in june of 2012, he created a youtube channel on his internet site, on his facebook page, and embraced
radical islam for the world to see. mr. president, our systems are not working. >> sean: the russians warned us. the fbi interviewed him. the cia had him on their watch list. >> yeah. >> sean: you're right. i mean, very few people in the media have discussed this youtube channel of his filled with radicalism. my question is, why was there no follow-up? was he not put in a database that said, hey, watch this guy, watch when his name shows up on the internet? certainly would have been a telltale sign. >> that's the ultimate question. less than 2% of the people in the database are american citizens, here on legal status. we can't have a system where you interview a guy where you've been tipped off by a foreign government, you have a radical in your midst. he leaves the country, you don't know about it. he comes back, gets on the internet for the whole world to see, and he embraces radical islam, and it's either political correctness, stovepiping, criminalization of the war.
i can't explain it, but to me the system is broken. i love the fbi, i love the cia. we've got eight dead americans killed in the last seven months, four in benghazi, four in boston. when you look at boston and benghazi things are not working. >> sean: michele bachmann told me she looked at the fbi training manuals and they've been purged to references of radical islamists. >> information-sharing doesn't exist the way it should. when he leaves the country, dhs picks it up, but don't share it with the cia. political correctness is not monitoring these people's facebooks and websites. what gets me, it was not hard to understand he was becoming radical before our eyes, but nobody really picked it up. when we found the photos of the
two guys after the bomb, how could that not alert the system? you'd already interviewed this guy. when they were asking the country, do you know these two guys, why didn't the fbi know they had interviewed him? >> sean: and anybody possession radical islamist videos ought to be monitored. napolitano races throughout to tell the american people something she doesn't know true, and that is there's no broader plot. three people were arrested today. that sounds to me there's evidence out that there is a broader plot. >> she has no idea. sounds like susan rice all over again. right after benghazi there's no evidence of an al-qaeda connection here. this is a spontaneous riot caused by hateful. did you see the three guys that the fbi released photos of in benghazi eight months later? do they look like protesters to
you? >> sean: no. >> what's going on here? benghazi is eight months old, nobody arrested, and the survivors never have been allowed to be talked to by the congress. this administration is investigating itself. i'm challenging this administration, allow the survivors to come forward without the fear of being fired. >> sean: where do we go from here? i know you called for a joint committee to investigate the boston bombings and benghazi. where do we go from here? >> the house is stepping up on benghazi, having new hearings. the fbi, cia, department of homeland security all need to be looked at, not separately, but jointly, to learn from our mistakes. again, i love the fbi and critics bucia,but when napolitas no connection to a broader plot, there's no way she could have known that that soon. and these guys didn't learn all this in the bottom of their basement. this administration doesn't want it out that al-qaeda is -- bin laden is dead, but radical islam

columbia, but i guess -- >> sean: i was thinking we might have better people than convicted domestic terrorist cop killers. i think we could find better. call me crazy. >> i think it's reprehensible what she did. i think she's a terrorist, if you want my point of view -- >> sean: she is a terrorist and cop killer. >> are you saying that everybody's who's been convicted in america should be jobless and left on the street? >> i'm saying this would be the same, michelle, as dzhokhar, 22 years from now, he gets all these degrees while he's on our dime, while in prison, then goes out and teaches at harvard. i don't get it. is the best we can offer our kids? >> what i don't get is how glib juan williams is being about this. it's not just rhetorical. the fact is that institutions of higher learning in america, particularly the most prestigious ivy league schools, whether it's columbia or yale or northwestern -- i name those specifically because those all have been sanctuaries and havens

journalist, but i started writing about this case in 2002 and 2003. there are families who lost loved ones, who were defending the frontlines, protecting and serving, and this woman essentially is laughing in their faces by continuing to have this prestigious position. >> here's what i know, michelle. you can comment on this. what i've read is that she wrote an essay in 2004 for the fellowship for reconciliation newsletter that said she's filled with remorse. she literally used the words "i am sorry." she said she's met one of the people who was left fatherless by the crime she committed, the murder she was involved with, and they're -- >> what i know is that at her parole hearing -- >> this is not someone without remorse. >> yeah. at her parole hearing she invoked every left wing kanard,
blamed white guilt for murdering in cold blood. maybe there was one remote relative who accepted that apology, but there are still people living today -- it's not just that particular case. remember, before she was arrested in that case, she was a fugitive involved in the bombing of a townhouse in new york, that still remain unsolved, and she ran from justice. some repentance there. >> sean: the weather underground's incidents of violence. we'll put it up on the screen. i want to remind everybody, it was the morning of september 11th, 2001, in the "new york times," there's bill ayers being quoted as saying, i'm paraphrasing, i don't regret setting bombs, i wish i had done more. >> stomping on the american flag, literally. >> sean: i'm shocked, juan. i mean, this is the best our ivy
league institutions can offer our american children? terrorists, cop killer. really? your kid works hard to get in an ivy league college and they get this as a professor? that doesn't outrage you, a convicted murderer of cops? let dzhokhar teach in 22 years, that wouldn't bother you? >> it's indefensible. it's indefensible. >> i don't want anything to do with the weather underground, their terrorism, left wing terrorism, right wing terrorism. >> sean: i'm speaking out about this woman teaching at an ivy league institution. >> she has served her time. somebody convicted her of a crimes, and now you have to columbia university saying, yes, she has the skills, the knowledge, and -- >> sean: we should hire the best at ivy league schools. >> they're not doing this with taxpayer dollars. that's their decision. if you want to judge negatively, go ahead. >> sean: that's the best america has to offer?

party. there's a separate problem, and that's the tone and approach. he kicked off the year by taking his campaign apparatus, obama for america, turning it into organizing for action, so he'll use his campaign as a pressure group, as a lobby group to pressure his agenda through, hold up members of congress back in his district. his partisan tone, everything is the republicans' fault, very harsh attacks. this guy is still campaigning. he's not gotten over it. when his aides go to the "washington post" and say his legacy as president of the second term will be to regain control of the house of representatives in 2014, that's all about politics, not a good way to start a second term. >> sean: if that's the case, i don't see anything happening for him. when obamacare kicks in 2014, people see the ramifications of this, none of this is going to be good. >> yeah.
look, you touched on something else here. that news conference the other day was unbelievable when it came to the affordable care act. president obama said, well, if you've got health insurance, you're already enjoying the benefits, you know how great it is, and nothing else will affect you. you've got all the good stuff and you'll come to enjoy and understand how much good stuff you have. first of all, your premiums have rocketed. the premiums are up by $1500 since the passage of this thing. >> sean: and going higher. >> and going higher. >> sean: united healthcare is going up 115% next year. >> not only that, but a lot of people who have got health insurance are hearing from their employer, you may not have it much longer. we've heard about restaurant companies putting people on 30 hours or less so they don't have to pay the $2,000 a person fine for dropping their insurance. the other day we had a friend, hosting a shower for them. they've got a baby coming in two months. he lost his job. he was the number one salesman
for his company the last two years running. they called him up and said, you're done, we're going to hire somebody, pay them 30 hours a week so we don't have to pay healthcare. two months from now, his wife gives birth to a child. >> sean: a lot of companies will do it, because that's the only way to get by and not be hit by the penalty. how big an impact will it have on 2014? >> a substantial impact. the president might be able to get back in the game if he has a supreme court vacancy this summer, getting his people riled up again. on the economy, deficit, spending, affordable care act, people don't like this administration. >> sean: are you predicting a retirement or two? >> i think there might be a retirement this summer. justice ginsburg i guess not in the best of health. more likely justice ginsburg. that happened in the past. it gives the president a chance to get back in the game.
>> sean: karl rove, the architect, thanks. >> you bet. >> sean: coming up next, two examples of how out-of-touch the democratic party really is. don't miss. that is coming up straight that is coming up straight ahead. i turned 65 last week. the math of retirement is different today. money has to last longer. i don't want to pour over pie charts all day. i want to travel, and i want the income to do it. ishares incomes etfs. low cost and diversified. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs.

offer we have to get to this point." we'll called it pelosi childcare. is that what we need now, obama childcare? >> no. that is the last thing that we need. what we need is to congress actually pay attention and do their job. they're so far out of touch with reality. america is in trouble. our economy is in trouble. they're talking about taking -- unleashing women from their children. it's crazy. >> sean: we're going bankrupt already. >> what we need is a consensus to balance the budget, reform entitlement, getting spending under control, and fix the tax system. we have to protect medicare, medicaid, and social security. >> sean: none of that will happen under this president, with this congress. >> he's got until july, sean, when the debt ceiling is hit again. there's been some rumblings about a deal. he needs that to salvage his presidency, because as you said earlier, and you're right, everything is going wrong for
him. >> everything is going wrong, and the republicans need to fight on principle. they need to stand up and show america that the conservative principles that they're supposed to embrace, show them it's the solution, that we can have a better america. >> sean: yes, the house republicans have done good things, deserve credit, passed some bills, but i don't feel they're communicating the way i want them to communicate. >> there's no message for the republican party. >> sean: like obama has messaged discipline. >> right. it is a message of redistribution, which i think is the wrong message, but the republicans are all over the lot. as george w. bush said they are leader-less. bottom line, the best ally president obama has is the republican party. >> sean: that's the only thing he has going for him is the republicans? >> yeah, because he's not gotten his agenda through. he's shown no willingness to really effect a real compromise, notwithstanding the dinners. bottom line, it just isn't happening. >> sean: if obama says that republicans are extreme, every
democrat will echo what he says. like a broken record. republicans don't have that message of discipline. >> they should be able to get behind at least thements you just showed and say we are against this. we are for families being able to take care of their own children, not the government taking over. >> sean: i want to repeal the last stupidity. >> the problem with the republicans is there's a big issue in this country. it's known as the economy, economic growth, and most of all job creation. there's no republican message. there's no democratic message on how to revive a more abundant economy to get growth over 2.5%, create the economic activity to produce the tax revenue to fund key programs. bottom line, it's missing. >> sean: see, i think the message they have is right, as you're saying, the conservative message, but i think they've got to be more political savvy and -- >> it doesn't come through, sean. >> sean: i'm not disagreeing. >> it's not just jobs, get off your sofa and work, we want i to
climb up the economic ladder, have a better life. >> sean: also energy production will save this company. >> nobody is talking about fracking, sean and we need it. >> sean: now greta is next. >> greta: three more suspects. >> three more suspects arrested in connection with the boston marathon bombings. >> according to the court papers, the prosecutors say two of those men had decided to throw away a backpack belonging to the younger bombing suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev. a third man, robel phillipos, 19 years old of cambridge, mass, was charged with willfully making materially false statements to federal law enforcement officials during a terrorism investigation. >> the main takeaway from the affidavit is that the three suspects all believed at the time that they took these actions to dispose of th
